Warning: 1st Visit May Cause Sleepiness

Disney's Human Element - Warning: 1st Visit May Cause Sleepiness

... And yet, it will bring a lifetime of memories
... It will be a dream fulfilled
... It will be the fabulous end-result of continuous planning
... It will be the joy of meeting all of your favorite characters
... It will be fun and adventure around every corner
... It will be the discovery of real-life magic
... It will be.... A thousand ways to catch a nap ;)

It has been such a great year, photography-wise and life-wise. Personally, I feel like I've had some active progression when it comes to shooting and post-processing. It's been great getting to know (and eventually meet) some of the amazing people here on Flickr. And as far as my home life, well..... most of you know the main part of that story. ;)

Have A Wonderful New Year Everyone!!!!

Love In The Limelight... And Redlight... And Bluelight...

Disney's Human Element - Love In The Limelight

More than any other time of the year, Christmas brings with it a spirit that can't be beat. It's full of the spirit of love... the spirit of giving... the spirit of cherishing all that is dear to you. And what better place than Disney to celebrate this spirit explosion. [No pun intended; as a major cheerleading competition is also held at this park every year] ;)

Happy Holidays Everyone!!!

Disney's Human Element - "Oh Santa!"

Mariah Carey - "Oh Santa!" ..... Disney Christmas Parade Taping

Since 1983, early December has brought the filming of the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade. Shot in Walt Disney World, as well as Disneyland; this event showcases some of the top musical acts around today. Seen on ABC, viewers have been treated to performances by Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, The Jonas Brothers, Diana Krall, Stevie Wonder, and Menudo (just trying to show a little diversity there); as well as countless other musicians.

And as a bonus treat for attendees like myself; you get to stand around for hours listening to the same beautiful Christmas song over and over.... all while trying to not get crushed by the Jonas lovin' teens. ;)
